"We Are The Ocean are set to re-release their epic debut album 'Cutting Our Teeth' on October 4th as a special 2 disc reissue.

Disc 1 is the full album 'Cutting Our Teeth' exactly as it was first time around, while disc 2 is four brand new recorded songs (with Jason Wilcock at Stakeout Studios), 2 b-sides and the 7 tracks featured on the much loved debut EP, which sold out in a day upon its 2008 (self) release.

Along with the reissue, WATO will also be selling a book to accompany the re-release entitled '3 Years', which documents the life of the young band so far. They talk about their proudest, funniest and wildest moments, as well as tour memories, what its been like playing all over the world with a debut album, how they all met and what its been like growing up together. They also list every show they’ve ever played and include never seen before photo's of the band on the road. The book will be available online, through the band's webstore and the Hassle Records webstore, as well as at the live shows on the forthcoming UK headline tour."
